India is not a tax free country country, we all know that. I am not very good at statistics but I know that a certain percentage of our income goes to the development of the country as income tax. Then whatever we buy at a regular basis, we pay tax for that also. Be it clothes, milk, bread or eggs. Let me not talk about the luxury of dining outside. A bill of 1600 INRRead more
I might talk about what I did and where I am from but sometimes I really doubt if these things matter. How would you narrate if you know me? By knowing my name, by knowing what I had done? Rather I prefer people knowing what I think and what I intend to do.
I believe a life with a purpose and to be honest so far I have done nothing in my life. I wanted to educate people which I can relate to and that’s why I started a part time job at IGNOU, if you ask me if this is what I wanted to do in my life I would say, No, but you gotta start from somewhere. I just don’t believe in trapping myself into the “earner-spender” never ending cycle, I want to do something beyond that.
Cast: Salman Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Harshaali Malhotra Director: Kabir Khan Rating: 3.5/5 The very first reason I would say I liked watching this one was because this one was made without the jingoism of hurting Pakistan. There were instances that they could have hurt sentiments of our neighbours but the dialogue writer did a very good job here. As a country we should be more mature about making films and this oneRead more
Cast: Varun Dhawan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Yami Gautam. Director: Sriram Raghavan Badlapur is a dark revenge saga which lives up to its promise. The first 15 mins of the film has been done vey crafitly andit is a total ‘not be missed’ part of the entire film. Varun Dhawan slowly moulds into his character, whereas Nawzuddin Siddique steals the show. The film delivers everything a good noir film would do. It has revenge, dirt, blood andRead more
Cast: Arjun Rampal, Jacqueline Fernandes, Ranbir Kapoor Directed by: Vikramjit Singh The movie is named after a titular character who actually plays an extended cameo role (Yes, Ranbir Kapoor! No prizes for guessing.) My question is why was the movie made in the first place? If you didn’t have a script, you should have casted Salman Khan, Mr. Vikramjeet Singh! There is nothing praise worthy in the film apart from the scenic locales of Malaysia.Read more
This morning I saw a picture on Instagram, shared by a student who is studying in Germany. In his words, “So this fourth grade German kid beside me in the library, just completed reading that book! #german #kids #academics”. To me it looked like an activity by an alien, I mean, being an Indian how do you even imagine in your wildest dream that a fourth grade kid can actually read a book for MacRead more
Chapter XVI, section 377 of the IPC mentions that whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against ‘the order of nature’ with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine. This section criminalises homosexuality in India and along with that it does not extend any rights to the entire LGBT community. TheRead more
Let us tell you a story. There is a kid around the age of 14. The competitive world dislikes her. Her school does not appreciate her because her understanding of the concepts of book is not great. It takes her time to gauge words and numbers. It takes her time to understand flight, speed and distance theories. But the same kid when she lifts a paint brush and canvas in her hands, puts the world toRead more
